Emirates and Italy’s Trenitalia join forces

Passengers can now connect flights easily with Italy’s high-speed trains, in both directions.

Emirates has revealed details of a new codeshare agreement with Italy’s national rail company Trenitalia, allowing the airline’s passengers to discover new destinations travelling on the ground across Italy.

With “just one easy-to-book ticket”, passengers will be able to fly Emirates and then reach some of Italy’s most picturesque towns and cities using high-speed trains departing from the airline’s four Italian gateways, Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice, TTG MENA reports.

“This codeshare agreement with Trenitalia opens up new possibilities for our customers and complements our current services to Bologna, Milan, Rome and Venice,” Hubert Frach, senior vice president for commercial operations west, said about the new partnership.

“With Trenitalia, travelling to the Far East from Foggia, or to Padova from Sydney has never been easier.”

Comfortable integration
Meanwhile, the director of Trenitalia’s long-haul passenger division, Gianpiero Strisciuglio, said: “The agreement signed by Trenitalia and Emirates is a pivotal step towards the increase of effective and comfortable integration between train and airplane.”

He added: “Our customers will now be able to buy one single solution for their train and flight journey, departing and arriving from 27 Italian stations and enjoying the comforts and the best commercial facilities offered by Trenitalia and Emirates.”
